Aliens: Council races
The second species to join the Citadel, the salarians are warm-blooded amphibians with a hyperactive metabolism. Salarians think fast, talk fast, and move fast. To Salarians, other species seem sluggish and dull-witted. Unfortunatley, their metabolic speed leaves them with a relatively short lifespan; Salarians over the age of 40 are a rarity.
The Salarians were responsible for advancing the development of the primitive krogan species to use a soldiers during the Rachni wars. They were also behindthe creatuon of the genophage bioweapon the Turians used to quesll the Krogan Rebelllions several centuries later.
Salarians are known for their observational capability and non-linear thinking. This manifests as an aptitude for research and espionage. They are constantly experimenting and inventing, and it is generaly accepted that they always know more than they're letting on.
Salarians : League of oneEdit
Before they joined the Citadel Council, the salarians' most potent military tool was a small reconnaissance team known as the league of one. Their primary training was in espionage and assasination. Never more than a dozen strong, the team was adept at infiltrating the tighest defenses and eliminating all necessary obstacles.
Only a few top members of government and military wer privy to the league's identities. League members wore no distinguishing garments, and held no particualr rank. The only evidence of their participation in the League was a small medallion presented to each member upon induction. This secrecy was maintained until the formation of the Council.
In an effort to dispel rumors and appease their new asari partners, the salarian union released all classified documents pertaining to the league. The league was suddenly exposed and in danged of being hunted by enemies of the salarains. Before any harm could be done, the team mysteriously disappeard. Most assumed this was convenient lie to help hide their identies, but a few months later, the inner cabinet was murdered. Though there was no Incriminating evidence, it was clear who was responsible.
Realizing the threat posed by this rogue outfit, the special tasks group dispatched a team of hunters. When they didn't return, the STG dispatched ten of its brightest operators with broad discretioary powers. Only two returned ; they reported no evidence of the League.
No further incidents were reported and it was assumed the League was wuped out some recently declassified documents , however, have suggested there may have been a thirteenth member who eluded the salarian military
